As a Catholic community we inspire our students to share in the life of Christ. We provide an educational environment, which will strengthen the spiritual and social values of the students.

Grade 5 is sponsoring this project. They are collecting kitten food from May 6th - 17th which will be donated to Pets In Need, a no-kill shelter in Redwood City.
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel students are expected to live with integrity and love like Jesus, becoming involved in their surrounding world and responding compassionately to those in need.
Our successful Community Outreach Program began in 1992. The monthly projects consist of organizing school-wide drives for several organizations that assist people in need locally, nationally and internationally.
The project has two primary goals: to teach the importance of community involvement to our students and to encourage the practice of religious values while helping people in need. Each grade sponsors one outreach drive that involves coordinating the activity for the entire school and incorporating it into their curriculum. Often the organizations that we support send representatives to speak with students about their particular role in the community and the challenges they face.
